1924 - 1999

Writing as: Michael Avallone, Troy Conway, Priscilla Dalton, Mark Dane, Jean-Anne de Pre, Dora Highland, Steve Michaels, Dorothea Nile, Edwina Noone, Sidney Stuart

A very prolific writer, Mr. Avallone published his first work in the early 50's and continued strongly until his death. In addition to the Ed Noon detective/spy series, he co-wrote the first few Nick Carter/Killmaster books and penned a large number of books based on popular television shows. He was born in New York City, one of 17 children. His foray into his career began as the writer of pulp fiction with the sports genre but he got his major education as an editor of men's magazines. He billed himself as the "fastest typewriter in the East" and the large volume of work in a huge variety of genres would attest to that. It would not be possible to produce so much so quickly without someone giving him the label of hack and that label plagued him for some time and caused a fair amount of ill-feelings.
